A man has been charged with a count of disorderly conduct while intoxicated after a water bottle struck Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam during the Sept. 18 Browns vs. Jets game at First Energy Stadium.
The man, identified as 51-year-old lawyer Jeffery Miller, charges for misdemeanor disorderly conduct by intoxication, according to reports.
Haslam was on the sidelines during the Browns’ game against the New York Jets on Sept. 18, but as he tried to walk off the field to the end zone tunnel, he was hit with that water bottle.
Miller was stopped and ultimately detained by security personnel.
The team has banned Jeffrey Miller, an attorney at Brennan, Manna & Diamond in Cleveland.
Brennan, Manna & Diamond, the law firm where Miller works, released the following statement:
“Jeff Miller’s actions, which took place on his personal time, are in no way a reflection of BMD. We are supporting him as he takes the time he needs to deal with this matter personally.”
The Browns return home Sunday for a Week 5 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.
